New best in Monte Carlo

21.04.2006 | Tennis

Roger continued his impressive form on clay as he swept into the semi-finals of the Masters Series event in Monte Carlo with a straight-sets victory over David Ferrer: 6-1, 6-3.

 

Roger and Rafael Nadal are now one match away from their first clash of the season after clinical wins in the Monte Carlo quarter-finals. Roger outclassed David Ferrer in just 61 minutes while defending champion and number two Nadal defeated Argentine Guillermo Coria 6-2 6-1 on Centre Court.

 

Roger clinched his quarter-final on his first match point dominating eighth seed Ferrer throughout. "It's my first tournament on clay but I have been practising with the French Open in mind for six months and I felt well physically today," he said.

 

Roger's semi-final opponent will be Ivan Ljubicic of Croatia or Fernando Gonzalez of Chili who were facing each other in the last quarter-final. "If I had to choose, I would pick Ljubicic because I defeated him everytime we met but both of them are playing well and it will be a difficult match," Roger said.

Well done (too say the least) Rog
You´re brilliance of shot making today was just of the wall!
Was it just me that noticed the fact that Ferrer in several occasions in the second set shook his arm in the air in an action of pure despair!?!?!
